The Shining One is one of the four Dying Man pieces from the blog Cumulonimbusaurus Rex. The Shining One is a very intelligent piece, but she acts almost childish most of the time. She was the leader of the sibling Pieces and managed to defend them from the Instant for many years. According to her brother she was killed by the Instant. However this was later proven to be wrong when she possessed Alicia Owly from The Owl running through the clouds during an attempt to destroy The Instant. Later she became friends with Alicia and together they try to take down the Instant. She's one of the few pieces that are friendly towards humans.
